NAME ^

Iterator::BreakOn - Iterator with control flow breaks

SYNOPSIS ^

    use Iterator::BreakOn;

    #
    #   get a generic data source with a next method implemented whom
    #   returns a generic object 
    #
    #   in this example the order of the items in the data stream is assumed
    #   to be:
    #       location, zipcode, name
    #
    my $datasource = $myschema->resultset('mytable')->search();

    my $iter = Iterator::BreakOn->new( 
                    datasource => $datasource,
                    break_before => [ 
                            qw(location) 
                            ],
                    break_after => [ 
                            'location'  =>  \&after_location,
                            'zipcode' 
                            ],
                    on_last_item    =>  sub { print "Finnished !"; },
                    );

    #                    
    # There are three uses modes:
    #
    #   Fully automatic mode: useless if not defined code for breaks
    $iter->run();

    #   Semi-automatic mode: get only the item (run automatically the other
    #   events)
    while (my $data_item = $iter->next()) {
        # do something with data ...
        1;
    }

    #   Manual mode: get every event as an object
    while (my $event = $iter->next_event()) {
        if ($event->name() eq 'before_location') {
            # do something before a new location comes
            
        }
        elsif ($event->name() eq 'after_zipcode')) {
            # do something after the last zipcode reached
            
        }
        elsif ($event->name() eq 'next_item' ) {
            # get the item (including the first and last items)
            my $data = $iter->next();

            # and do something whit him

        }
        elsif ($event->name() eq 'last_item') {
            # and do something when the end of data reached

        }
    } # end while
